The highlights of SoundPLANessential at a glance

Modelling the geometry

The geometry is either digitized on the screen on the basis of a bitmap or imported if digital data is available. In addition, an interface to Google Maps is available to you.

Intuitive, graphical model data editing

Here, the acoustic properties of the model data are added or displayed in a clearly structured form.

Definition of the emission

SoundPLANessential allows you to calculate noise emissions from roads, railways, industrial sources and parking lots. The extensive emission library already provides you with a large selection of spectra, to which you can add your own spectra at any time.

Calculations using Multicore and Multithreading

Directive-compliant calculation of road, rail or industrial noise with the original, quality-tested SoundPLAN calculation core.

Tabular documentation

The emission parameters of the different sound sources and the results including the partial levels and dispersion parameters are documented in tables in a clear and understandable way.

Graphical presentation of the results

The results of individual places of immission are cartographically edited as small tables together with the model data. From the results of the grid noise map calculation, isophones can be displayed with colour scales that can be freely defined for each time range. Boundary isophones can be highlighted.

Building Acoustics

The additional module "BauAkustik" ("Building Acoustics") is a very helpful tool when it comes to noise remediation or protective measures against external noise when planning buildings. It includes facade optimization for any number of facades and components, as well as the use of the supplied sound insulation library.
